Iveta Eimontaite studied Cognitive Neuroscience (MSc, University of York, UK) and completed her PhD in Cognitive Psychology (Hull University, UK). Prior to joining Cranfield University in June 2019, Iveta held research positions at Bristol Robotics Laboratory (at the University of West of England) and Sheffield Robotics (at the University of Sheffield). Her work mainly focuses on behavioural and cognitive aspects of Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) with particular interest in user needs and requirements for the successful integration of technology within the workplace/social environments.
Within SATM’s Industrial Psychology and Human Factors group (IPHF) Iveta works on the H2020 project SHERLOCK (http://www.sherlock-project.eu/). Her role within this project focuses on acceptance and wellbeing of operators in manufacturing who are working collaboratively with high payload robotic arms, exoskeletons and mobile manipulators in diverse production environments. Iveta is employing a range of qualitative and quantitative methods in conjunction with physiological measures to estimate key psychological safety factors and ensure operator engagement and wellbeing.
